(Persia Digest) - The restored versions of two documentaries made by Ebrahim Golestan and Forough Farrokhzad, acclaimed Iranian directors, will be screened at the 76th Venice Film Festival in the classic films category.
The category began work in 2002 by screening restored versions of world classics. Twenty films will be shown this year, including the documentary ‘The hills of Marlik’ produced by Ebrahim Golestan in 1964, and the documentary ‘The house is black’ by Forough Farrokhzad produced in 1962.
‘The hills of Marlik’ is 15mins long. Seemingly, it is about archaeological excavations in this area, but it is a work on life, art, sustainability, and a better tomorrow. The house is black’ by Forough Farrokhzad is 21mins long about the Baba Baghi leprosy sanatorium in Tabriz, northwestern Iran.
The 76th Venice Film Festival will run from 28 August to 7 September 2019 in Italy.
